In the PHB the Acolyte background receives two bonus languages of the player's choosing. The primer states that any section (such as languages) replaces that section in the PHB background. It then lists only a single language (based on church) under Acolyte Languages.

Are you saying that Altherin (for Pantheon of Man) is meant to be an extra in addition to the two languages granted by Acolyte in the PHB?


The intent is definitely to add to what the acolyte receives from the PHB. We will add that clarification to our list of Primer updates.


But Elorii will automatically speak Eloran already, so it seems redundant. Also Altherian natives will speak Altherin as their regional language. Do PHB rules that state that you can replace a duplicate language or proficiency with another of your choice still apply?


It is a little redudant for the elorii but it makes sense for the rest of the churches. And thus far, there isn't really any other language that is connected to the elorii.

Technically, the core rules don't say you can replace a duplicate language. You can only get a different tool or skill proficiency if you get a duplicate. But backgrounds are meant to be customizable so that they match your Hero. As long as the GM approves, tweaks are ok.
